"Gappy's First Words is one of a few apps that are really good in helping your juniors learn spelling and sight words. It is most suitable for juniors ages three to six. The fact that it packages the learning experience in a fun, playful, and creative environment helps motivate juniors to come back to the app and practice often. Note: Thank you to the wonderful people at Spinlight Studios for sharing the app with us. Gappy's First Words has really helped Philip in learning how to spell."
